    I was heading to western express when shaffer called me offering the military program to me at .43 cpm I feel like there a better company then western express. The recruiter got me a rental which is better than greyhound anyday im just super excited right now. If anyone has any info on the company let me no.

    That's what I was talking about. Let this be your first lesson of trucking 101. Find out about a company BEFORE agreeing to orientation. This is where drivers make the biggest mistakes. Now Shaffer isn't a bad company, you did dodge the Western Express bullet, but better to learn what you're in for before jumping in blind.

    Update: I officially started orientation with crete carrier /shaffer today may 19 2014 I was put in a hotel which was very nice. I was given a rental car to come up in and I returned it today at the terminal. They put all the gas back into the vehicle and there also reimburse me for tolls and gas. I am at this very moment waiting to do my physical and drug screening then we will be heading back to the terminal to do our road test. I will update this thread threw out the day.
